Watch Pikachu and Mimikyu Rap Battle in a Cute Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Commercial

Rappin' good.

Even if Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is pretty disappointing in terms of new and worthwhile content, at least it gave us this sick rap battle between Pikachu and Mimikyu.

Released over the weekend in Japan, a new commercial showing the two Pikachu-like Pokemon (though one is an imposter—both in clothing and rapping skills) face off on stage. Pokemon officially transcribed the rap battle in the description for the video, where Mimikyu spits out "Guggagogogogogogigo" and Pikachu hits back with "Pikapikapikapikapikapikapikapikachupyi!!!" Poor Mimikyu never stood a chance.

This is the latest, and possibly the greatest, in Nintendo's eccentric ads for games. Earlier this year, Super Mario Odyssey got its own live-action musical in the form of a commercial. You can watch Pikachu and Mimikyu's rap battle below, and decide the winner for yourself. (It's Pikachu, duh.)
